    Ok, 12 days til thanksgiving and probably another 10-14 days after that that folks will pay you to hang lights. maybe a few days after that if you agree to hang thier lights. Get on the internet and get you 100 18x 24 signs ( not smaller- don't go cheap) that say "Christmas Lights Installed" with your Phone number on each side, one color with stands can be bought and shipped to you in 3 days for about 250 bucks with stands. put them out where folks can see them as they leave thier nice subdivisions. Put them out in front of your lawn customers houses. put them at every job you have hung. don't give me sign ordinance excuses. we've only got 3 1/2 weeks left for install. if it makes you feel better, slap a paper garage sale sign, "Thur-Sun" with an arrow on the other side. at least the city will leave it ther for the weekend. expect to replace signs every week.

    These will get you calls and get you some work. It maybe thier lights, and you may have issues, but anybody on the fence needs to get off now. either do this or not. If you wait two more weeks, it will be too late to order signs.

    Go Team !
